Are You Building A Guest House On Your Country Property?

Do you have enough out-of-town company that you have decided it's time to build a separate guest house? Since you live in the country, you are probably feeling grateful that you have enough property on which to construct the guest house. Perhaps you have an established plan already. If so, go for it. On the other hand, you might still be considering what your plan will be.

Maybe you have decided to capitalize on the fact that you live in the country. If that's the case, maybe you want a barn-like structure. If so, from selecting rustic barn doors to selecting the furniture for the inside of your guest house, here are some ideas that might help you.

A Rustic Exterior - Consider the kind of materials you will use for the exterior of your country-themed guest house. For example, rock or brick walls would both be good selections. What will give the guest house a real country look will be the installation of a rustic barn door. Don't you think rustic barn doors have a kind of elegance to them? The type of hardware you select for the barn door will determine a lot, too. For example, if you want the extra elegance, think of choosing pewter or brass for the barn door hardware. If you want a true rustic feeling without the added elegance, consider black wrought iron for the hardware.

Besides the rustic barn door, think of selecting a metal roof for your guest house. Shingles would be another good choice. Either one would be great with the rustic barn door you select. If you want a bit of a Mexican or Mediterranean rustic feeling, go with a terra cotta tile roof. 

Rustic Furniture - To add to the rustic feeling of your guest house, consider also buying rustic furniture. For example, a headboard created from a barn door would be one unique and attractive way to add a rustic feeling to the inside of your guest house. Things like wooden kegs might be perfect to use as bedside tables. An antique travel trunk would add interest at the foot of the bed, and it would be a good place to keep extra linens. 

If there's enough space, add a couple of rustic rocking chairs and a rustic wooden shelf. The shelf would be the perfect place for a television set. It would also be a fun place to display things like rustic bowls and decorative animals like bears or deer. For pricing quotes, contact a local company, such as 2 V Custom Doors and Rustic Designs.
